After a review of the existing IHA constitution which began in March 2017, it was agreed to adopt a new constitution based upon the template provided by the Australian Sports Commission which is used by over 90% of the sporting bodies in Australia. The new constitution was presented at a Special General Meeting of IHA held on May 25, 2018, where the members voted to adopt the new document and structure.
This sees us move from the previous Association structure to a company limited by guarantee which will have a board of directors elected by the members of IHA (States plus the AIHL and OiHAN)
Since that time, we have been working through the steps/paperwork required to register the new entity.
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) have accepted the registration of the new company – Ice Hockey Australia Limited ACN 629 477 890, and we are therefore now governed by the new constitution which is published at www.iha.org.au/governance
At the upcoming AGM, there will be elections for 3 new directors to join the Board of IHA.
